just sayin’ … another day … another dollar

Sunday, March 21, 2021

There might be light at the end of the tunnel.

Thursday was rough … Friday was difficult … Saturday was unspeakable.

If DS2 wasn’t here … I don’t know what I would do. I was asked … why don’t you take Hubby to the nearest hospital.

I’ve counted to 10 … so I think I can explain without screaming. You see when you have mental health issues you still have rights.

I take him to the hospital.
Hubby is asked … sir do you want us to help you.
@#$%! NO.
Ma’am we can’t do anything until he consents.

So, there we are with Hubby acting a … fool … while no one does anything until he becomes violent.

I have Medical Power of Attorney for him … it states he has psychotic episodes therefore I am his voice.

NOPE. Not as long as he can speak.

But the good news.

I called Doc and we upped Hubby’s meds. Hubby actually took them.

He is gently snoring.

DS2 took a nap as well.

No food was eaten to sooth my soul. I took a nap, too.

Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.

    (((HUGS))) It is indeed frustrating. Prayers that the new dose of med continues to help DH calm down so YOU can, too.

    How frustrating that even with the legal right to be his voice they can't help you. What a lonely place to be...thank goodness your son is helping you both. Praying this episode will soon be over, and keep taking care of yourself. emoticon emoticon

    Yes. Many people don't understand that patients have rights.

    And that the patient's rights impose responsibilities on those who didn't seek them and at times cannot bear them.

    At huge cost to themselves. We don't have such a rich and nuanced understanding of caregivers' rights.

    Glad you slept. Hope you're close to the end of this episode.

    emoticon Hang in there. Glad you are resisting the use of food (which in the long term, we both know doesn't work!) but hope you are finding ways to get some rest for yourself! emoticon Thank God for your son's presence!
